We had a great time with the crew of Captain Alan. After an interesting snorkel Colleen took us to a point where there was a school of dolphins. We just hung around while they circled our boat and everyone got a great view. We have gone out with Captain Alan for the past 15 years and looking forward to taking... More

What a well crafted excursion. Many great experiences in one fun packed 4 hour trip. The times we had as family will never be forgotten. Captain Allen and his beautiful wife are class act and do a great business together. You will never regret doing a excursion with them and ratings speak for themselves. So glad we had this opportunity... More

We had a great time on the 4 hour snorkel trip. It was our first time snorkeling, and it was very cool to see the sea turtles up close. A couple of them surfaced to breathe right in front of me! We went to a couple different places to snorkel, and we stopped at Pineal Island, for lunch(sandwiches included in... More

Stumbled across Captain Allen's in Oyster Bay, St Maarten and we're glad we did! Very reasonably priced with knowledgeable and friendly staff! Had a great time. Perfect for the experienced snorkeler or the first-timer. Highly recommend the 4 hour trip if you're anywhere on the island, as they're very easy to get to.

I took the 4 hour snorkeling tour. The price was very reasonable for all that it included. The company offers a transportation service, which we used. They picked us up at an area which was a quick 5 minute walk from where the ship docked. The entire staff greeted us when we arrived. Unfortunately the weather was unusually windy which... More

I traveled with my husband and two children (5 and 7 years old) and our trip was nothing short of fantastic! We used the suggested shuttle and it got us from point A to point B and back. The driver was not talkative but he did his job. The process of getting on the boat was smooth and efficient. We... More

I arranged a trip with Capt Alan for my two children (ages 9 and 11) and myself. Capt. Alan advised us about the seas ahead of time. We got to snorkel with turtles, snorkel above a living reef with beautiful fish and eat wonderful homemade sandwiches on a pristine beach with live iguanas. We went on a boat with a... More

This trip was great fun! We started with a theme-park-style boat ride out to our first stop, complete with plenty of splashes to make everyone laugh! Tintamarre island was beautiful, with what felt like plenty of time to watch the sea turtles feeding and also have a walk on the beach. Our drift snorkel was very cool, lots to see... More

A friend and I were in Sint Maarten for a couple of days and we decided to book the Three Island Snorkeling adventure with Capt. Alan as it had been recommended to us by a friend. Needless to say that we had an amazing day! The crew was very friendly and organized. The 1st mate on our boat, Debbie, was... More

My wife and I were recently in St. Maarten and had made previous arrangements to snorkel with Captain Alan's. The day we were there we assigned to the boat operated by two beautiful ladies. One of them being Colleen, Captain Alan's wife, the other lady was equally as beautiful. She was the boat's captain. Immediately, upon leaving the harbor we... More
